Master Course: A Tour of Italy with Nicola Biscardo
We are excited to be able to announce another Master Class featuring a very special guest: sommelier, winemaker, and importer Nicola Biscardo. A 4th generation winemaker from Verona in the heart of Valpolicella, Nicola continued his family’s legacy of producing extraordinary wines, forsaking his political science studies at university. Then in 1997 he moved to the United States to market and organize the importation and distribution of his wines on this side of the Atlantic. After returning to Italy, he expanded his import portfolio to 33 wineries and estates that focus on organic and sustainable viticulture and winemaking.
This class is a unique opportunity to taste and talk with one of the most well-rounded wine professionals in the world as he has worked in almost every aspect of the business. In this two-hour course we’ll be tasting 6 different wines from across the Italian peninsula that Nicola either made himself, or from one of the spectacular estates he has handpicked to represent in his portfolio. Get an expert's tour of Italy through the lens of these spectacular, small-production, family made wines.
